The New York Society of Ceramic Arh was founded in 1892, by Mme. E. Elizabeth Le Prince, 
It Is an organization of Artist-Craftsmen and Sculptors, who believe that trained craftsmen are an 
essential part of our machine era and that by devoting themselves to the highest standards of 
workmanship they can be a guiding force in the field of industrial production.

The purpose of the Society may be said to be threefold:

work it is possible to obtain. 

2. To bring before the public in as many ways as possible the expression of 
the creative ceramist — in Sculpture, Pottery, Glass, and Enamel. There is 
at least one Exhibition of members' work given annually. 

3. To give the members of the Society as well as the interested public an 
educational program which will further the study, understanding and apprecia- 
tion of creative ceramics. 



Craftsmen wishing to join this organization must be sponsored by a professional mem- 
ber and submit three or more pieces of their work to the membership jury.
